Boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel
What it is: A peeling gel designed to exfoliate and cleanse skin
The claim: “This peel gel works in three ways: as a physical peel to remove the outer layer of dead skin, as a chemical peel to penetrate deep into skin for in-depth exfoliation, and as a treatment to firm and brighten for a healthy complexion,” – Boscia
Available at: Boscia, Sephora, Amazon
Price: $34 (5 oz)
I received a 1 oz bottle of Boscia’s Exfoliating Peel Gel for free, so naturally I decided to try it out (because who doesn’t love trying out free products?!)
I used a generous amount of this product on my skin, and, after a few moments of gentle, circular rubbing, I noticed that the “dead skin” was coming off like crazy and pilling on my skin.
Super exciting, right?!
Well that “dead skin” would stick like glue to my eyebrows and any little baby hairs, and once this product latches onto a hair, it doesn’t want to let go. Basically, this product is the ultimate clingy ex… minus the constant texts and creepy Facebook posts, of course. I had to scrub my face until it was red and raw to get rid of the residue, and even then, some remained.
The whole process was a literal mess, but did the Exfoliating Peel Gel deliver on its promise of smooth, bright skin?
Short answer: No.
Long answer: Nooooooooooooo.
The “dead skin” sticking to my face provided promising results, but as it turns out, that result was not what it appeared to be.
Use this product on a surface other than your skin (such as a kitchen counter), and you’ll see that Boscia’s formula naturally pills when scrubbed on any surface.
The pills look flesh toned, which leads consumers to believe that the product is stripping unwanted dead skin from their face.
Boscia’s Exfoliating Peel Gel is, therefore, just a disgusting gimmick designed to fool consumers. If you love ingesting placebos for no reason, then you’ll absolutely adore this Boscia product.
For shame, Boscia. For shame.
